Becoming a partial GAPS family has required some experimentation. Some learning. Adjusting to new textures.
I thought I would miss bread or grains the most by being on GAPS.
Nope. (Giving up dairy for a season is proving more difficult.)
With the discovery of coconut flour . . . I get my “texture” needs met. Coconut muffins are good. Coconut cookies, though different in consistency to their counterparts, are a decent rival.
If I never had wheat again . . . I don’t think I would cry.
However, I’m hoping grain and my thyroid will one day get along.
But until then, I’m trying to substitute coconut flour for wheat flour (using drastically different recipes thanks to Cara’s Grain Free Monthly Menu plans.)
I’ve tried several different brands of coconut flour . . . but in all honesty, I prefer Tropical Traditions coconut flour. I like the texture and how it if easier to blend with other ingredients.
